Horses in appalling condition have recently been seized by RSPCA Inspectors and sadly, more are expected next week.

“We understand only too well about drought conditions but hay, although expensive, is available and it’s an owner’s responsibility to make certain their animals are fed,” said RSPCA Chief Inspector Daniel Young. “If they genuinely can’t afford to keep them then they need to make other arrangements such as a rescue group or agistment.”
 
8 horses are now at RSPCA Qld’s Wacol shelter and another eight are expected in the next week.
 
“We desperately need foster carers that can take some of these horses, said Shelter Manager Nanda ten Grotenhuis. “ Some areas, particularly around the Gold Coast, still have ample feed, but the RSPCA also organizes feed for all foster carers. We simply don’t have the space to keep them onsite once they are ready to be rehomed. We also have two beautiful miniature horses that are looking for a home. They were in terrible condition when they came in but they’re in great shape now.”

Please email fostering@rspcaqld.org.au for more information on fostering horses and an application form.
